netscape dead, really this time

Zeldman | "People, it's over:" AOL kills Netscape. Mozillazine reports that AOL 'has cut or will cut the remaining team working on Mozilla in a mass firing and are dismantling what was left of Netscape (they've even pulled the logos off the buildings).' ...small consolation is that Mozilla lives on; although I'm hardly turning cartwheels about that. Mozilla's user base is *small* and mostly confined to geeks. It'll take a miracle for your average user to switch to Mozilla.

UPDATE: An article on Cnet has an AOL representative claiming that Netscape has not been axed outright by AOL - 'Netscape remains a key part of our multibrand strategy,' AOL spokesman Andrew Weinstein said. 'We will continue to support the browser and the portal.'. Who do you believe? The spokesdroid or the laid-off staff?
